Songs for Those Who’ve Come Across the Seas

A prog-rock cabaret show exploring the beauty and strength of diversity.

World Premiere
Australia 

An isolated volcanic island emerges from the ocean. A seed floats in from distant shores, finding purchase on the rock. A beetle, clinging to driftwood, washes ashore. Time and currents bring more and more new arrivals, by accident and design, to create a rich and varied home.

Songs for Those Who’ve Come Across the Seas is a prog-rock cabaret show exploring the beauty and strength of diversity. Featuring original songs, fabulous projected imagery and Slingsby’s immersive and thought-provoking theatre making.

From Slingsby – the company that created The Tragical Life of Cheeseboy, Man Covets Bird, The Young King and Emil and the Detectives.
